done infrastructure, railroads and highways, caring for the vulnerable and the poor in education. and then you saw that the campaign rhetoric about the few and the many was not just campaign rhetoric. he tied it to the idea of america, that when we replaced the king, we didn't replace tyranny with the privileges or the few. and he kent through his campaign about we have to do it together not on the backs of the view. so i think we have calling on citizens as you're suggesting to act, to come forward and he was defending government. he was defending government in our time, that maybe it has its problems and it's work out, but essentially was telling citizens, i need your voice, i need your action. and he talked about immigration, finance reform, things that people didn't expect. but it's sort of the journey that's not finished rather than a policy-walking thing. so i think it's really the agenda for the next term and the awareness that he won't get it done from inside. he needs these characters from outside to come and is be part of the process. >> i'm very happy to have tom broka
